About the MChG

The Munich Chemical Society (Münchener Chemische Gesellschaft = MChG) is a local section of the Society of German Chemists (Gesellschaft Deutscher Chemiker = GDCh).

There are two local groups in Munich. One group is located at the Ludwig-Maximilians-University (LMU), the other one at the Technical University of Munich (TUM).

The MChG was founded in 1876 by ​​the chemist Wilhelm von Miller, the successor of Erlenmeyer at the Technical University Munich (TUM now). His brother Oskar von Miller was the founder of the Deutsches Museum.

The MChG is one of the oldest scientific societies in Germany and continues to be an important scientific forum.

The MChG is a membership organization that tracks only charitable purposes. The purpose of the association and its directorate is the promotion of science and research in all fields of chemistry, which mainly is realized through the organization of scientific conferences. To this purpose, the MChG is working also with the Jungchemikerforum (JCF, association of young chemists) in Munich.

Financing of MChG occurs mainly through general and earmarked donations from companies and individuals, the German Chemical Society annual subsidy and on its member fees.
